Cycles and Events in Stratigraphy

Cycles and Events in Stratigraphy




Cycles and Events in Stratigraphy not only describes a large variety of marine bedding features, including gravity mass flows, siliceous sediments, phosphorites, shallow water carbonates and glacio-marine cycles, but also stratification phenomena in lacustrine sediments, coal cycles, and tephra layers on land and below the seas. Scales range from annual varves to larger, mainly sea-level controlled, sedimentary sequences. Secondary effects, such as biological response and feed back mechanisms, trace fossil tiering, and diagenetic overprinting, are also presented as well as special techniques in timing and correlating cyclic and event bedding phenomena. This book follows the very successful precursor volume "Cyclic and Event Stratification", but has a much wider approach. It addresses graduate students as well as professionals in geology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, and paleontology.
